Karolinska Institutet reviews recruitments funded by Swedish Research Council

Karolinska Institutet will review six of its international top recruitments funded with special grants from the Swedish Research Council. The review follows a recent decision by the Research Council to decrease the originial grant, due to KI not fully complying with the grant conditions.

The councils' decision regards a recruitment where KI did not manage to set up the planned research project in time and hence the recruited researcher was granted leave from the position at KI. However, accordning to the grant conditions the researchers shall work at least 50 per cent at thte university during the time of the grant.

The researcher in question is one of six researchers at KI recruited with grants from the Swedish Research Council's grants for the recruitment of distingquished researchers. KI's vice-chancellor has assigned the university's grants office the task of reviewing that all recruitments are in compliance with the stipulated grant conditions.
